The Microsoft Surface platform relies on groundbreaking software to make all of its technologies work together seamlessly. We’ve already considered the system enhancements that interpret multiple touch points and other objects. Now, we’ll zoom in to the graphical side of the NUI and look at its interactive software

One of the most popular aspects of the Microsoft Multitouch technological revolution appears to be the do it yourself aspect to the technology that is starting to sweep across the nation. In a rather weird twist for the Microsoft Surface computer, rather than Surface sales numbers going up, it appears that a number of different people have started creating their own Multitouch interfaces and saving themselves a lot of money in the process. You know that the DIY craze has gotten to ridiculous levels when Microsoft begins to get involved. But that’s exactly what has happened. Perhaps taken aback at the backlash against their $10,000 Surface computer in the form of DIY Multitouch proliferation, Microsoft has introduced the Microsoft TouchWall. This handy piece of hardware

Multitouch technology seems to be conquering the imagination of technology giants the world over, as more and more of them join the bandwagon to develop new interfaces every other day. A technology that has taken the world by storm since Apple first introduced it in their iPhones and iPods. Now, Multitouch Interface is all set to take over an era where mouse and keyboard pads will become outdated. The most intriguing part of Multitouch Interface is its ability to be largely versatile. MultiTouch technology, initiated with mere touch-screens widely used in money vending machine and airport kiosks. However, Apple made the first successful implementation in hi-tech applications such as in iPhones and iPods. Even though Apple is not the inventor of the technology, however the

Shahram is a researcher at Microsoft specializing in * Novel user interfaces and input * Interactive displays/surfaces * Tabletop computing systems * Tangible computing * Multi-display environments * hardware and recognition techniques for interactive systems * Technologies for domains outside the office e.g. the home or public spaces * Mobile User Interfaces and infrastructures About His Current and Past Projects…. ThinSight: this project navigates a new technique for optical sensing through thin form-factor displays. It accepts the detection of fingers, objects near the display surface. Basically a regular LCD screen is turn into a sensing surface that can be used for multi-touch and tangible computing applications. Emphasis is both on the underlying hardware and software aspects , as well as the interaction techniques and application

After i posted about Rosie Multitouch Coffee Table, i then learnt about an other similar technology which is called as Tangent – A MultiTouch Surface, which was being developed since several years Tangent is built on the multi-touch research platform and used as a digital medium for research,testing and developing innovative and new multitouch interaction techniques. Tangent offers a direct interface to manipulate virtual objects by making it possible to touch and interact with these objects. Tangent asks for fundamentally different interaction principles than the ones known from traditional interfaces, similar to microsoft surface. In the project phase Tangent was developed and built and a range (set) of interaction principles were designed and implemented. Hardware: It uses a tabletop multi-touch surface consisting of a rear

“Pretty much all the devices that are available to consumers such as tablet PC’s, or businesses such as the smart boards and kiosk PC’s are single touch only. The devices just emulate normal mouse interaction with a single cursor. The touchtable, surface pc and perseptive pixels devices all allow you to interact with multiple touches at the same time, either both hands or several people at once. This bit is the most challenging, both from a hardware sensing, and a software processing perspective. I’m not too sure how the touchtable and perseptive pixels stuff works, but the Surface PC works using IR sensing, as decribed here.” http://geometrybag.wordpress.com/2007/06/15/build-your-own-touchtable/ “Anyway, after a bit of searching I found this site dedicated to building your own touch table using
